1913: McMahon (Victor McLaglen) has just built himself a life as a civil engineer with a wife (Lois Wilson) and a little son when his past - he was a big league gunrunner - catches up with him, and he has to give the authorities the slip, but not without promising his wife to send for her once he has settled somewhere else - but alas, over the years, he continuously gets into troubles with the law, and ultimately his wife dies without him ever seeing her again, and his son just disappears ...

1933, in a small South American country on the brink of revolution: McMahon is helping revolutionary Don Fabio (Ivan Lebedeff) to build up his army when his past catches up with him in the person of Mason (William 'Stage' Boyd), the cop who has been tracking him for the last 20 years - and he has the grand idea to capture McMahon with the help of two gunrunners (Guinn 'Big Boy' Williams, Dewey Robinson), and McMahon is only just saved by fellow American Pat Collins (Regis Toomey), a man whose acquaintance he has only just made.

McMahon soon trusts Collins like his own son, and he persuades him to work with him as gunrunner - but then he finds out that Collins actually is his son, and he tries to dissuade him from working in this line of work - but Collins won't listen.

Then though Don Fabio turns against McMahon and tries to have him arrested - but only manages to hav Collins arrested. At this point, McMahon changes sides and works out a deal with the country's still-president Valenzuela (Henry B.Walthall) to let him go if he brings him Don Fabio ... and soon enough, McMahon has dissuaded the revolutionary army to fight for Don Fabio, has distracted his bodyguards, has kidnapped Don Fabio, and has brought him to the local police and has even managed to make it look as if it was all the work of his son Collins, which immediately sets Collins free. And to make sure he can himself make an escape, McMahon has changed identities with Mason ...


Nothing big, but an entertaining adventure yarn, made on the cheap quite obviously but directed at a fast pace and carried by some quite good performances (not necessarily Mascot's strength).
